RolfKaese is right, Hohenheim is German
Hohenheim Elric Edward and Alphone's father, gets his name from a town in Germany. It's also the surname of Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, more often referred to as Theophrastus von Hohenheim, an alchemist with the penname of Paracelsus. Von Hohenheim, on its own, is the equivalent of calling oneself something like Jack of London. However, it indicates Arakawa spent at least some time digging through introductory alchemical histories or texts, that he would chose such a name for the boys' father.

why are there russian songs in anime? why the Gits Saccy OP in russian?
*hums mystery tune*
Well I was really about to mention Ghost In The Shell: StandAlone Complex and their 2 opening songs(Inner Universe and Rise) made by the same Russian woman: Origa. I don't mind for russian songs in the anie since so far they have proved to be beautiful. Maybe there are quite some Russian in Japan and both countries have long commercial relationships (not that far from Siberia or Vladisvostok). As far as I know, Origa has been quite a while in Japan.

Try getting Fields of innocence by Evanescence too. You might have to WinMX or Kazaa though, I havent found it direct, it fits in with FMA really well (I saw and AMV with it). That'll make you sad too ;_;, Amy Lee has such a beautiful voice.
"Fields Of Innocence"
I still remember the world From the eyes of a child Slowly those feelings Were clouded by what I know now
*chorus* Where has my heart gone An uneven trade for the real world oh I... I want to go back to Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all
I still remember the sun Always warm on my back Somehow it seems colder now
*chorus2* Where has my heart gone Trapped in the eyes of a stranger oh why... I want to go back to Believing in everything
